You can snorkel for free at the Eden Rock Dive Centre. It’s just past the Palace restaurant and within easy walking distance from the cruise terminal. We went there on a Saturday when there were no cruise ships in port. We have our own equipment, but I think they might rent snorkeling stuff there as well.
Once you’re ready to go in, the staff will explain where to go, etc. Very helpful and very friendly – just leave them a tip when you get out. Snorkeling here was different than anywhere else we’d been on the island. Big outcrops of coral. Saw lots of neat stuff – but no turtles, sharks, etc that others have reported seeing. My wife did see a tarpon though. Water was getting a little choppy however, so after 30-45 minutes we came back in. Just as we were climbing out a big rainstorm hit. After that it was not safe to go in at all as wind also picked up considerably.
If we go back to Grand Cayman, I would definitely go back here.
